S7E3 – Africville

Africville was a community that for decades stood on the physical, social and racial margins of the city of Halifax. It represented Nova Scotia’s legacy of Black migration into Canada but also spoke to the very real challenges people faced settling in a land that saw itself as a white province within a white nation. The story of Africville is one of struggle and resistance but also one of community and connection and despite its ending it now stands as a celebrated marker for one of the many groups that have contributed to a broader understanding of what it means to be Canadian.
